%%* OfCorsetsSexy



* ReallyGetsAround: Miss Scarlet is implied to be this. Her being a brothel madam compounds the issue, as someone in that line of work probably needs to maintain some degree of division between their personal and professional lives. This is used to justify her making out with Professor Plum when trying to hide the bodies of the murdered informants from The Cop (see OfCorpseHesAlive).
** This leads to a gem of a line in the {{Novelization}}: in the scene where Mrs. White reveals her BlackWidow nature, her recitation of how men are like Kleenex is corrected by Miss Scarlet thusly: "Their slogan is Soft, Strong, and [[RagingStiffie Pops Up]], Too."



&&* ButtMonkey: At times.



%%* TheDitz




to:

* PluckyComicRelief: The cowardly Mr. Green, [[spoiler:except in the third ending]].
-->"Sorry, I'm a bit accident-prone."
* SuspiciousSpending: He drives a very expensive car for someone who lives on a colonel's paycheck. His explanation is that he inherited the money during the war. [[spoiler:He actually stole and sold airplane parts on the black market during the war.]]



* BlackWidow: Mrs. White. "Husbands should be like kleenex. Soft, strong, and disposable."
-->'''Mrs. White:''' His head had been cut off. And so had his... ''[[GroinAttack you]]'' [[GroinAttack know...]]
-->''Colonel Mustard, Mr. Green and Professor Plum simultaneously [[ShareTheMalePain cross their legs]]''



* DoesNotLikeMen: She has some male issues. She has two husbands who died under mysterious circumstances.



* AlliterativeName: In the book series, Gerald Green.

to:

* AgentPeacock: [[MultipleEndings depending on the version of the film]] you got, he's actually [[spoiler:an FBI agent who spent the whole movie (plus whatever setup time the sting required) ''[[FauxYay pretending]]'' to be gay to get into Mr. Boddy's blackmail ring. He is the one who finally killed Mr. Boddy. In the hallway. With the revolver.]]* AlliterativeName: In the book series, Gerald Green.Green.
%%* ButtMonkey



* StraightGay: [[spoiler:Except in the third ending, where he was [[TheMole a plant]] ("A plant? I thought men like you were usually called a fruit.") from the FBI [[FauxYay pretending to be gay]] so he would be blackmailed, and is in fact [[HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday "going home to sleep with [his] wife"]]. [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation So he says.]] He couldn't very well have told his boss something else, could he? All the evidence that he was gay burned up earlier in the movie, though given Wadsworth's surprise when going through the evidence, it's probable that Green actually is straight--or, at the least, being gay would not appear to be what he was being blackmailed for]].




to:

* WouldHitAGirl: He slapping Mrs. Peacock early on (see GetAholdOfYourselfMan above). During TheSummation, Wadsworth does the same thing.



%%* BadLiar: [[spoiler:Except in the second ending.]]



* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: [[{{Cloudcuckooland}} Everyone has their moments]], but possibly the biggest offender is Mrs. Peacock, who spends a lot of time babbling about irrelevant things, especially when things get a bit too quiet for her tastes. Mr. Green is also a notable Cuckoolander, especially in the second ending.
-->'''Mr. Green''': Mrs. Peacock was a ''MAN''?!
** Mrs. White has some moments, like her rambling of how much she hated Yvette for sleeping with her husband:
-->" I hated her so...much..i-it, the, it...flames, flames...on the sides of my face...breathing, breaths...heaving breaths...heaving--"



* LadyDrunk: Strongly implied. She has an unsteady walk and slightly slurs her words. [[spoiler:Tellingly, she "sobers up" in the second ending, wherein she committed all the murders - implying that she was ObfuscatingStupidity - but remains relatively addle-brained in the third, wherein she (and all the others) only killed one person.]]



* MotorMouth: When she tries to break the ice at the dinner. The rest of the group just stare as she goes on and on.



* NotSoHarmlessVillain: [[spoiler:In the second ending.]]
* PrettyInMink: She shows up wearing a fur wrap. She only wears it for a few minutes in the film, but far more often in promotional shots.



%%* CasanovaWannabe



* DistinguishedGentlemansPipe: He smokes one.



* LovableSexManiac: He tries to put the moves on every woman in the film ''including'' Mrs. Peacock ("It's just you and me now, honeybunch!") and the singing telegram girl [[spoiler:who, it turns out, he had an affair with.]] Even his hand somehow ends up on the dead cook's ass.



** PlayedForDrama in the second ending, where Wadsworth points out to the murderer that, since they did the world a great service by getting rid of those people, he's willing to keep quiet about the murders. The other guests agree and even serenade the murderer with a version of "For He's a Jolly Good Fellow" as they leave the mansion.



* MotorMouth: When summarizing the evening's events at the end of the film.



* MsFanservice: This is especially true in-universe with Prof. Plum, Col. Mustard and Wadsworth sneaking or overtly peeking at her cleavage.
* FrenchMaid: She wears a skimpy Hollywood French Maid outfit complete with heels, stockings, short, frilly skirt and apron and a very low-cut top.

But [[{{Fanservice}} that's okay]]]]. This is currently the image for the trope.
* GagBoobs: Check.
